-- after obama was elected, you have these people in guantÁnamo and they didn't even know who they were. some of the obama administration said is let's collect this and put together a task force. the passports got screwed up to start with. included every agency. there is now an assistant attorney general who the deputies then they had represented at from every agency from the cia and the defense intelligence agency and defense department. it was a very conservative agency and there has had to be unanimous opinion to clear anyone. this person is not of intelligence value. so if we were careful with this process, many of the people couldn't come to be unanimous agreement. i hope that helps answer some of the questions. .. some of those are recommended for trial because the government said they were too dangerous to these and didn't have sufficient evidence. that's what i have issue with. i think it is important to remain focused on the prisoners who were cleared. if the task force of the sober officials recommend the transfer, surely all that is required is the most minimal kind of superv

the korean peninsula. it was unpopular. truman couldn't run for re-election because of it. we took a vacation. we had nuclear weapons supposedly make up for it and we had vietnam and we took another vacation. i think we got it right after the cold war. we're in to a different era. more than any ones i remember, the economic impacts of spending are a national security problem i would agree with that and agree with people who say we can't continue to lead unless we fix our economy. i think it's wrong to say we'll fix our economy by reducing the defense spending. with e can't fix our economy unless we tackle the entitlement issue. before long the entitlements would eat up put us in a terrible deficit problem. so if we have to leave, which i think we do, if we have to be able to afford to leave. which i think we must. i think we have to fix our economy. it's bigger problem than the defense budget. >> mark, do you want to -- make -- mike do you want to weigh? >> no, i'm ready to hear from the crowd, myself. right there. please wait for the mic and stand and introduce yourself.
